Gifts For Beginning Cooks

Stylish Yet Essential Gifts For the Beginner Cook

It's that time again when we start making our holiday shopping lists and sharing our favorite finds with you. If you need gift ideas for all of the food-obsessed folks in your life, then look no further. For the next two months, we'll be bringing you tons and tons of gift guides for everyone on your list, starting with the beginner cook.

If you know someone who's just getting into cooking or perhaps setting up her first kitchen, you could consider an elegant yet practical gift (such as some topnotch Wusthof knives), a few essential ingredients like olive oil and sea salt, one of the best cookbooks around, or an apron that's cute but still befits a serious budding chef. See all of our beginner cook gift suggestions.

I absolutely love the How to Cook Everything cookbook. I have given it as gifts multiple times and use it for all the fundamentals of cooking.
